The year is 2021 and still, there are football fans who can’t enjoy the sport we all love without being racist or abusing players of other teams, there are no excuses and zero tolerance is the only way to deal with them.
A video emerged on social media after the Ross County game in which a bus of Rangers fans are seen to be singing songs aimed at Celtic’s Kyogo Furuhashi.
Rangers are investigating after a video on social media showed supporters chanting a racist song about Celtic forward Kyogo Furuhashi.

Various news outlets picked up on the story and it won’t be difficult to identify who the culprits are, their days at Ibrox could be numbered given the usual punishments that are dished out for this sort of behaviour.
Rangers fans on Twitter were disgusted by the behaviour of their fellow “fans” calling out the actions of the few that tarnish the reputation of the club and those that are capable of attending games without being abusive:
Good racism has to be punished severly its absoloutly abhorrent, lifetime bans, racism has no colours

These idiots are not loyal fans and should be banned for life!

Fans involved should be banned.
Supporters club should be banned if they do not help club identify those involved
Public apology to player from the supporters club.

This isn’t the clubs problem but the club will deal with the situation. No matter what club you support, you’ll always have individuals shaming the club. It happens but you gotta laugh at those acting like angles when they’re not.

Permanent ban from Ibrox for the main idiots in the videos and a complete revoking of tickets for the RSC please Rangers.

Life time bans and hand them to the police…no place for this in society

Before the Celtic fans pile on EVERY rangers fan like they are desperate to do, this has been condemned by our support and he does not represent us. Those involved on that bus are scumbags and should be dealt with accordingly.

Social media can be a force for good, in this instance someone has posted something abhorrent but, because the majority of us are tolerant and respectful in supporting our team, the people involved will be punished, it won’t be hard for Rangers to identify those in the video, let’s hope they act swiftly and decisively – people like that are not welcome in our club.
